Cognita Mindfulness Workshop “Knocking on our own door”

The climate of awareness created by mindfulness is as much about ourselves, as it is about the living and inanimate beings external to us. It allows us to get to know ourselves better, and to establish a relationship that is more happy and at peace with ourselves. This is also the antidote for the otherisation and discrimination that we unwittingly and inadvertently have been practicing. It makes one more calm, reposeful, and productive. In this month’s Akbank Sanat Cognita Mindfulness workshop we will be working on bringing awareness to ourselves, to our environments and to our everyday life.
